In a significant development within WWE's creative landscape, recent reports confirm that the creative trajectory for Roman Reigns remains unaltered, notwithstanding major internal reshuffling. Previously, we reported that Paul "Triple H" Levesque has assumed full control of WWE’s creative direction, as Vince McMahon steps back from his hands-on role.
Contrary to what some may have anticipated, the change at the helm hasn't affected Reigns’ storylines. Roman Reigns, alongside his on-screen manager Paul Heyman, continues to be deeply involved in shaping his on-air persona and narrative.
This collaborative approach has been the norm thus far, irrespective of Vince McMahon's level of involvement in the company's creative decisions. Notably, WWE Hall of Famer Michael Hayes is the go-to producer for anything concerning Reigns on the small screen, specifically when it comes to the Bloodline storyline.
Hayes has been pivotal in overseeing the production of various segments, interviews, and story angles that feature the Bloodline faction. In particular, Hayes spearheaded the production aspects of recent developments such as Sami Zayn’s promo on WWE RAW and the main event for the Undisputed Tag Team Championship.
Steady Reigns Amid Change
Further cementing the notion that the new leadership hasn't dramatically altered creative plans, sources indicate that last week’s much-talked-about face-off between LA Knight and Roman Reigns on SmackDown was actually in the pipeline well before McMahon relinquished his creative control.
The tension-packed angle between the two superstars was not an immediate outcome of Triple H’s reinstatement as the head of the creative team. In summary, despite the seismic internal changes, it appears that the creative process for Roman Reigns, one of WWE's top draws, has remained consistent.
This is indicative of the high level of trust and creative autonomy afforded to Reigns and his team, a rare attribute that remains unchanged amid a period of transition within the WWE.
